If it is cheap and substandard, the doors will not move smoothly, and eventually the whole system may fail.

If you put on a closet or in a bathroom door with a louvered grill, moisture will not accumulate inside and the air will circulate freely.

There is no moth in the cupboard, there will be no stale smell and dampness. Thanks to this natural ventilation, the cabinet will always be in the ventilation mode.
